15 Creative Ways to Display Christmas Cards

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  I felt that the 4 days flew by so quickly, and even though I tried taking a break to have some “down time” for myself and spend time with my family, I was still busy, busy, busy.  After my belly was stuffed with some delicious food on Thanksgiving day, I ended up venturing out late in the morning on Friday to “score” some HOT deals.  Then Saturday we transformed the house into Christmas mode, and I finished out the weekend with a Holiday party at a friend’s house yesterday.  How was your Thanksgiving weekend?

Well now that we’re in full-on Christmas mode for the next 4 weeks, I am positive that you will be receiving lots of christmas cards, if you haven’t already.  Our first Christmas card arrived the day after Thanksgiving, like it ALWAYS does by the same person each year.  And it begins….  Have you received your first Holiday card yet?

Every year I display the many beautiful cards that we receive in different ways, and this year I was alittle at a lose.  In search of some inspiration, I scoured the blogosphere and found some really great ways to display those gorgeous cards instead of taping them to the wall.  Let’s take a look~
